Life is Continuous Light - Bald Cypress

The cypresses connecting the Nagai Botanical Garden entrance to the Oike Lake shine brightly.


When people pass by the cypresses, they shine more brightly and produce a tone. The light of that tree then radiates out, spreading to nearby cypresses as they resonate with the same tone. If light approaches from the opposite side it signifies the presence of people there, making people more aware of the existence of others in the same space.
